Globe Guilders Fashion Show

On Tuesday, May 21st, the Globe Guilders hosted their 23rd annual Celebrating Couture Fashion Show in conjunction with Neiman Marcus. Over 600 guests gathered at the Hilton San Diego Bayfront Hotel and kicked off the event with a champagne reception and silent auction. Once inside the ballroom, the crowd participated in a live auction featuring, among other items, a Holland America Line cruise, afternoon at Brookside Winery and dinner at BiCE Ristorante, along with a delicious lunch. Following lunch, Naeem Khan's 2013 Fall Couture line took to the runway in a beautiful fashion show, complete with a cupcake surprise for Naeem, who celebrated his birthday with his San Diego fans that day (and his fifth year at Celebrating Couture). The funds raised at the Fashion Show support the Globe's artistic and education programs, and the Globe thanks the Guilders for all of their tremendous work to make it a success each year!
